The Kensington Magazine celebrates 5 years with a Party at The Roof Gardens

A sure sign of a good party is when your mother wakes up the next morning and demands Neurofen! The Roof Gardens hosted a wonderful party to celebrate our Fifth Anniversary. The champagne flowed, the Mayor of Kensington & Chelsea spoke and the even the flamingos flaunced their stuff. Residents, clients, friends and family all helped to make this an occasion to remember. Roll on the 10th Anniversary!  (written by Lucy Elliott)

Lucy’s party on 11th April celebrating The Kensington Magazine’s fifth anniversary was a glorious and glamorous affair, given in the Roof Gardens. A truly British celebration with mini portions of fish and chips, baby beef-burgers and sticky-toffee puddings and the champagne flowed freely.  It always has up there.  In the early 1930s,when the Roof Gardens were first planted, my husband’s grandmother, Lady Perry-Robinson loved to open them with the Mayor of Kensington, as a major event of the London Season. It was no surprise that at Lucy’s party the current Mayor,Councillor Julie Mills, enthused publicly about how the magazine has bound us all as a community. Pink as the flamingoes on the pond, Lucy seemed overwhelmed by the praise. Most of us simply agreed with the Mayor!  (written by Maria Perry.  A fuller version of her account will appear  in the May edition)
